Drinks to Enjoy this Cinco de Mayo
Happy Cinco de Mayo! This day, which means fifth of May in English, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. It’s also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in America, Cinco de Mayo is a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. The day is celebrated with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing and traditional Mexican foods. To mark the occasion, we’ve put together five Mexican drinks to get you into the spirit of Cinco de Mayo! Salud!

Clase Azul Plata is made from Tequilana Weber Blue Agave in the small Mexican town of Santa Maria Canchesda. Over 100 artisans dedicate their time to creating each unique bottle one at a time.
